Applications Now Open for Newark Makerhoods – Nation’s First Effort to Combine Live/Work, Light Manufacturing, Mentoring and Ecommerce Support in Single Platform

Program provides holistic solution for micro-entrepreneurs’ challenges in housing and business-building that keep millions from moving up the economic ladder

NEWARK, N.J.--()--Makerhoods is excited to announce the application process is now open for the Newark Makerhoods Live/Work Program. The application window is from April 12-May 14, 2021.

Located in Newark’s Central Ward, Newark Makerhoods Live/Work Program is designed to elevate makers, artisans, and other creative individuals looking to grow their passions and micro-businesses into thriving businesses. With housing and commercial space becoming increasingly costly in the region, coupled with the fact that it is becoming more and more difficult to grow and sustain a profitable business, Makerhoods’ mission is to help people grow profitable businesses that create prosperity, secure futures, and inter-generational wealth.

For one affordable monthly cost, people accepted into the program receive an apartment, a separate commercial space zoned for light manufacturing to run their business, and business services - all in an active, supportive community.

Makerhoods Founder Avi Telyas said, “We are so excited to bring this opportunity to the hardworking makers and help them accelerate their business growth through our Live/Work program. We can’t wait to watch them thrive!”

Makerhoods has assembled resources to help people submit strong applications and is also hosting application assistance workshops.
